Sunday, May 15, 2011 – At Sea – Atlantic Ocean – Mostly Sunny – mid 50s

A cool day at sea…

The automated wakeup call system on the ship is having some technical difficulties so we set up a wakeup call with the front desk.  Two wakeup calls actually came in – 6:30 AM (from the day before?) and 7:00 AM.  I went up the Windjammer for the early continental breakfast but decided to wait for the real thing at 7:00 AM.

My final talk:  “Novel DNA Testing” drew slightly more folks than the previous talk (may 230 or so).  The crowd was still pretty quiet due to the hour and time change. Still a nice warm last round of applause.

Today, I got lunch for us at the Sea View Cafe which we ate in the Windjammer (Fish and Chips and Tuna Melt).   

At 2:30 PM, I attended Ted’s final talk.  He has given me a couple of plugs during his lectures and did so today.  From the talk, I went to the Solarium where we had the best seats in the house.  From this vantage point, I tried to take a picture of a school of dolphins who were pacing the ship.  There were about 30 or so dolphins visible but I got mostly their splashes in the water (below).

On our way to the Coral Theater for the 9:00 PM show, the sun was still pretty high in the sky.

Tonight’s Final Production Show is “Tango Buenos Aires”, a show featuring Argentine Tango Duo, Rocio and Luciano, along with the Tango Buenos Aires Orchestra.

Amanda, James, Craig, and Danielle did a wonderful job on “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” (sung mostly in Spanish) (below).

The show was great and everyone took their bows.
